Yasuhiko Uchihara is the winner of the “Grand Prix” of the 27th New Contest of Photography (link in Japanese).
Canon launched the public competition project “New Cosmos of Photography” in the autumn of 1991, to discover, foster and support new faces in photography, who challenge to pursue possibilities in photographic expressions. Unrestricted and original works, experimental collaborative works of different genres in image expressions, works of digital images, and not to mention, works made with conventional plate cameras, are to be encouraged. The “New Cosmos of Photography” contest is held twice a year.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography will show the grand prix winner and the excellent work prize winners of the “New Cosmos of Photography 2004” from November 27.
PS: Finally the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography set up a homepage in English. Unfortunatly the information on the exhibitions and events is, except the titles and dates, still in Japanese :-(.
